Last Thursday i was very kindly invited to attend the New Cid cosmetics event just off Oxford street in London. I first met up with Louise and after a mooch around some shops and a quick drink it was time to pop along to the event. I really like their range of costmetics and i've featured them twice before (here and here) so i was really excited to see the new range. We were very looked after and it was fun to look around the place!

(Louise & Myself)

We were given a talk by the founder Kelly Coleman and the thoughts behind the new products such foundations, lipsticks/nail polishes with LCD lights (like the lip glosses) and the one I'm most excited about, the mousse eye shadows.

I really like events when they're personal with a small number of people there. There's nothing worse than being somewhere over crowed where you can't chat to people and can't get a real idea of the products you've been invited to see. But i was very happy to see there were less than 20 of us there and after getting split in to 3 groups you got to see each section (face, nails and lips) really well and it was so interesting to see the new collection. We were treated to a make up lesson, having nails painted and trying out the liners and lipsticks from the MUAs which was lovely. It's always nice to try out the products first hand to get a real idea of it.

It was a very flying visit, i got in to London around 3pm and left at 8pm but it was a really nice evening and the 5 hours travelling down from Leeds was so worth it. After the event myself, Louise and Catherine had a mad dash to Nandos before our separate trains home and it was really nice to have a catch up!

We received very generous goody bags which I'm so excited to try out and give you guys a review in the next few weeks so if you're interested keep en eye out!

Thanks again New Cid for the chance to see the new collection and get to know more about the brand!
